  • The first room we were allocated was revolting, looked like a storage room and it stank of stale tobacco smoke. We asked for another room and got one which was far better but still was barely the minimum standard you'd expect. Another guest at the time we checked in was appalled too. Grotty furniture, dim bathroom, fan full of dust, green polyester sheets that were badly pilled, AND it's not a hostel at all, budget motel would be more accurate. Given the price, the place is a shocker.

  • Terrible service, they were rude, unimformative, quick to frustration and quick to charge you extra. Seems to be a culture difference between the staff and the guests where the staff are openly rude to the guest and don't seem to have a problem with it. The facility has reports and photos of bed bugs online, the parking garage has limited spaces which they don't monitor. Boyfriend and I had to spend over 30 minutes looking for parking after a 12 hour drive. Not cool.

  • You had better change your website to explain why guests under 30 are not allowed to stay. You kept my security deposit after I had already completed the booking and I had to find another hotel at which to stay. Highway robbery.

  • This isn't exactly a hostel, but a motel where someone has put a lot of beds into the same room. There is no common room, activities or hostel athmosphere. That being said, it's an acceptable place to sleep for the price, clean with kitchen and bathroom in the room and a good location if downtown is where you want to be. Probably great if you're travelling in a goup, not so much for solo travellers. Oh, and very thin matresses.
